Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Manson Show?

Just picked up Ed Sanders' new memoirs of his days in the 'Total Assault on the Culture' (which is fantastic, btw. Lots of fascinating and hilarious details from a true insider of the era). On p.239, he mentions going to see the Dead and wondering if it was the show was Manson tripped and 'experienced the Stations of the Cross'. Been a long time since I read Sander's book on the Manson family, but either forgot or never knew this tidbit. Anyone have any idea which show this was? Be interesting/creepy to listen and guess at what stage his passion starts/ends.

Charlie got run out of (or up and split) the Haight in 1967. If memory serves the show in question took place at the Avalon according to Ed Sanders chilling book about Manson called "The Family".
Since Charlie didn't get paroled until March of 1967 it can be logically assumed the Grateful Dead show in question took place somewhere around July or August of '67 at The Avalon Ballroom. He moved out of the Haight-Ashbury around August/September.

Thanks for that; sounds like it's time for a re-read of the Family, and a re-listen to summer '67. Apparently Ed has a bio of Sharon Tate in the works as well, so he's keeping up the research.

Will we ever get his 900 page biography of the Eagles? Wonder why they squashed it......

The Talkin' Mrs. Difranco Blues was hilarious.
